USA 'locked and loaded' if Syria uses chemical weapons again: Nikki Haley

  • Vladimir Putin condemns air strikes on Syria

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Sunday that the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.

She explained that the 105-missile strike "obliterated" the major research facility used to create the weapons and shared a message from President Donald Trump.

However, one of the stated goals of the strikes was to deter Syrian President Bashar Assad's government from using chemical weapons again.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", she added. Russian Federation has vetoed at least six resolutions in the U.N. Security Council regarding chemical weapons.

Since the USA and its allies attacked Syria Friday in response to alleged chemical weapons attacks on its own people, there has been a significant surge in Russian trolls promoting fake news, the Pentagon announced Saturday. It is still unclear how effective the strikes will be against Syria's regime.

The Pentagon also says none of the missiles filed by the USA and its allies was deflected by Syrian air defenses, rebutting claims by the Russian and Syrian governments.

Seahawks postpone visit after Colin Kaepernick won't say if he'll stop kneeling
It's getting harder and harder for NFL teams to claim not signing Colin Kaepernick is exclusively a football decision. Kaepernick has been a free agent since last March when the 49ers did not pick up his contract option.

The allied strikes drew immediate condemnation from Syria and its allies, Iran and Russian Federation, who accused the U.S., France and Britain of violating Syria's sovereignty and violating global law.

Numerous protesters FOX40 spoke with say, the chemical attacks remind them too much of alleged "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq in 2003.

The site west of the city of Homs was an alleged underground chemical weapons storage facility, doubling as a command post.

The United States "gave diplomacy chance after chance after chance", she said, only to have Russian Federation block, last Tuesday, an effort to set up an independent body to investigate chemical attacks in Syria.

The vote reflected support for the airstrikes on Syrian chemical sites but also again demonstrated the paralysis of the U.N.'s most powerful body in dealing with the seven-year-long Syrian conflict. President Donald Trump "enforces" the red line and the United States will sustain the pressure on the war-torn nation, she said. "The American films have shown since the 1990s that Russian-made weapons are 'backward.' However, today we can see who is really lagging behind", Russian lawmaker Dmitry Sablin quoted Assad as saying.

"Assad's commitment of atrocities using chemical weapons against innocent civilians can not be tolerated by civilized nations", said Rep. Newhouse. "It is not about regime change". He authorized a barrage of Tomahawk cruise missiles to hit a single Syrian airfield in April 2017 in retaliation for Assad's use of sarin gas against civilians.
